Stringdusters were frankly disappointing. I was not that enthralled with SCIncident either (three sets too much). Lettuce, however, is bringing the funk.

Lotus was excellent as well.

The Trey Anastasio Band came on the stage and proceeded to burn the place down. There are incredible players in that ensemble. I could live in the huge groove Tony Markellis lays down. Compositionally much better then Phish. I do not like Phish, but have a real shine for TAB. I wonder if there is a similar GD~JGB dynamic in play? A Phishead would say.....

Huge? I thought of Paul Prudhomme sitting on his chair. Nice show. Rain delay for Phil and Haynes.

Not a great night for Phil and friends. Warren in particular had an off night. Morning Dew was... awful. However, it is true that twenty-five years on and my fondness for derivative GD is near gone- even for a core member. I'd rather just listen to Jerry if I'm going to lend an ear to those songs........ Huge Paul Prudhomme ..... “That’s a BIG pocket.” – (about Tony M) Carlos Santana ;-)

I could not tell what song they were on even when I knew.
I checked out TAB and they take off after some innocent beats. A lot going on there. I liked the weekend and all the "new" music for me.Summer afternoons tunes

I almost hate to admit (but did way back in 2015), I like Trey based solely on a couple of VIDs I watched of the Chicago DEAD shows (the original "last ones" or whatever it was called?). I always liked M. Gordon (assume he's not in this lineup) from his time w Leo Kottke...but, never have gotten around to Phish.

Unusual, right? Not many folks end up liking the "solo" or "post big group breakup" lineups of their respective heros (ie, die hard Phish fans?), but if you were never exposed to the earlier incarnation, there's less to hold you back...if you follow that odd, almost reverse psychology logic.

IMO the Stringdusters have been in a bit of an identity crisis since their Grammy win in 2018. Laws of Gravity was a phenomenal album produced by Billy Hume who seemingly has the Midas Touch when it comes to studio work and record production.

Rise Sun has its moments, but my takeaway is they tried way too hard to hit all the hot button social/political/environmental topics - and they did it with a passive-aggressive "light and love" approach. I was disappointed.

Their set at 4848 at Snowshoe earlier this month was brilliant - because they reached deep and played older favorites, with just the right mix of stuff off the new album.

Now, as I finish this ramble and get around to landing the plane.....

Lettuce was unbelievably entertaining. I was pleasantly surprised by their ability to hold the interest of a crowd with nothing but funky jamming and no lyrics. Their set was fun - as evidenced by multiple episodes of my "58 year old white guy dance".

A test of the new
system of mucking things up The Studs Terkel interview was odd but very good interview by an old hand full of “who are you again” yet in some ways classic and JG was very patient and sounded pleased with it all. There is another one there from earlier that year, 79, WLIR and the host knows a lot but sounds like a young punk. JG says it is the first time for Nassau since 73 and first time ever at MSG Links for lunch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c1rb25wD7s

My brother put it like this: "Studs was genuine and curious, just like Jerry."
That's what made it work despite the fact it was a little odd- not your typical deal with a would-be hipster fawning all over Garcia, who I suspect found it a little refreshing.
